I am working on the UI design of a CMS that enable users to manage websites. The interaction I am looking at now takes place when a new menu item is created.
This is what I have so far:
For an existing page, auto-complete table search will be implemented. For a new blank page creation, a pop-up is used. Until here no problems were found (see Image 1 (before page creation). In user tests, this part of the interaction went smoothly.
Problems occurred after a new blank page was created (Img 2, A). During the tests some users were confused and felt they had completed the main task, but they still needed to finish the creation of the menu item.
I am looking for a solution to visualize the effects after creating a new page. The consequence is not only the page creation but also the automatic selection of this page in the left search bar.
I thought of hiding the page creation area after a new page is created, but this limits the option to create a second new one if a mistake was made.
Img 2 B shows a possible solution, but I am still not convinced that this is a good one.
Are there other possibilities or better alternatives?
